Hello, I’ve always loved the idea behind LXQT. Sometime ago, I did a small post. And afterwards I saw some concerns about this on other forums. For example, if I want to contribute how I can know that LXQT won’t become something like a bloated DE with liblxkf5framework at its base.
So, may I ask several questions?
What is LXQT’s goal? To be Lightweight?
What does it mean to be lightweight today?
How are developers planning to meat their goal? What tasks should be solved?
I want to clarify, KDE consumes less than 400 MB, Firefox and Thunderbird consume together at least 1 GB being active. So, the size in RAM of a DE doesn’t really matter these days. And the question arises - what is the LXQT’s goal? What does it mean - to be lightweight? Maybe, performant? And the answer on this question means a lot. For example, I want to contribute to lxqt-screensaver. What should I do? Should I make it work faster, or maybe make it smaller, or maybe I should integrate more features, or maybe make it more efficient in terms of communication with other apps and thus making the whole system more perfomant? Without having answers for such questions it is hard to feel involved.
